India luxury tour – spot an Indian tiger
Animal lovers everywhere will want to visit Ranthambore National Park. Ranthambore is also the location of a 1,000 year-old fort, with an area full of historic temples and memorial stones. It’s home to India’s famous tiger reserve, where if you’re lucky, you may just spot one yourself. The tiger’s the country’s national symbol and is represented in art, literature and folklore. The park’s also home to leopards, deer and over 200 species of birds.
Tigers are an endangered species, but there’s still a good chance to see one in the wild. Authorities are restricting access and raising prices for the national parks to protect the tigers. That said, it’s better to visit sooner rather than later.
